American Psycho


American Psycho is a novel by Bret Easton Ellis, published in 1991. The story is told in the first person by Patrick Bateman, a serial killer and Manhattan businessman. A film adaptation starring Christian Bale was released in 2000 to generally favorable reviews.[2] The Observer notes that while "some countries [deem it] so potentially disturbing that it can only be sold shrink-wrapped", "critics rave about it" and "academics revel in its transgressive and postmodern qualities."[3] In 2008, it was confirmed that producers David Johnson and Jesse Singer were developing a musical adaptation[4] of the novel to appear on Broadway. The musical premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London in December 2013.
